Boulder, CO District Attorney Asks Feds To Back Off Medical Marijuana

In a letter to the top federal prosecutor in Colorado, District Attorney Garnett said he wanted the feds to leave dispensaries complying with state law alone.
“I can see no legitimate basis in this judicial district to focus the resources of the United States government on the medical marijuana dispensaries that are otherwise compliant with Colorado law or local regulation,” Garnett wrote in the letter.
And of course, there is no “legitimate” reason, only shady and illegitimate reasons. Mostly having to do with pharmaceutical companies putting pressure on the politicians they have donated money to. Big pharma doesn’t like competition.
We applaud Stan Garnett for expressing his opinion to the federal government and standing up for those in his city and state, even though it will probably cost him some big campaign contributions later in his career.
